Because one day of Thanksgiving isn't enough (3 of 7)
Today, I give thanks for the opportunity to help people I love. Of course, I would rather they never hit the kind of rough waters in life that require really heavy lifting, but since that's not an option, I am glad and grateful to be part of many communities and relationships where help is needed or wanted, many people come together to make the load easier. I'm grateful to people who need help and ask for it, for not shouldering the burden alone and in silence, and for giving their friends and family and sometimes the community beyond the opportunity to lend a hand. I'm grateful for how this brings us together and deepens our relationships and connects us to the larger network of humanity.
